Our children absolutely love Kids Square. It was amazing watching them get completely immersed into imaginative play! The town provides so many opportunities for children to see themselves in different professions; I loved watching my son develop interest in the medical field and my daughter develop interest in news reporting!Amber Perdue
My son really enjoyed Kid’s Square. His favorite part was shopping in Kroger and talking on the phone at the bank. It’s a wonderful place to let your kids use their imagination.Crystal Mabe
My family loves this place! They can spend hours and hours and frankly, when it isn’t busy, you will find me opening safes, testing our hearing, giving a baby an MRI or scanning groceries. There is a whole town, including our beloved Roanoke Catholic School. That’s just one of the areas of endless fun – there is an obstacle course, a hair salon, a theater where kids can dress up and put on a play, an area for building tracks for balls, and so much more!Ryan Suzanne Michalski
